bOne day as I was driving from Galveston to Houston with some friends, the police pulled us over for speeding. We had been jamming some Bob Marley beats, reminiscing the great time we had had with the ladies at the beach. When the cop came over to my window, he couldn’t help but notice the reggae music playing in the ride. After advising us he had stopped us for speeding, he went on to ask if we had any marijuana. We didn’t have any weed and we respectfully told him no, and also asked why he had asked. His response was that, since he had heard some Bob Marley music playing, he just wanted to make sure we weren’t stoners. The dog was called off cause, but we knew better than to travel with marijuana in the car coming from a spring break vacation. Nothing was found, but it was mind triggering that they would call a K9 to search our car just because we were listening to Bob Marley.

Bob Marley is well known for his reggae music and smoking weed. Reggae music is also famous music amongst stoners. To to a degree, I can understand why a trooper with the K9 had to be called.  It’s no secret that Bob Marley smoked marijuana in public and even on stage at times. As his music hit the World Billboard Charts, marijuana also become more popular and more acceptable in multiple societies.  I mean, here was a GREAT musician –who seemed to function very well after blazing some of that holy smoke and the world was just falling in love with him. All continents were listening to his hits. Some even only tried pot, after listening to Bob Marley. That’s just how affiliated he was to the marijuana flower. For some , it was even a ritual to smoke weed whilst listening to Reggae.

Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction. Bob Marley

Today Marley’s affiliation to marijuana lingers on. It’s been close to 40 years since Bob Marley died, but today stoners still play that Legend Album as they enjoy some Cannabis.   Bob was a Rastafarian from Jamaica and this was probably the first group of folks to advocate for the legalization of marijuana in the 20th Century. Long before the regular citizens knew the benefits of marijuana, Bob Marley and The Wailers were already talking about its advantages. The Rastafarian’s grow long dreads and at times are in the bush for long periods of time. These actions led misinformed idiots to assume that marijuana made them crazy.  This was rubbish off cause .Due to his support for marijuana legalization, the power of his music to stoners and also his ability to ignore the stigma associated with weed –Bob Marley is so respected in the marijuana circles. Any marijuana festival you go to, will have more folks wearing Bob Marley t-shirts, than any other famous person.Enough respect to the baddest, folks.

When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself. Bob Marley
